Subject[PATCH] proper lseek locking in ALSA, take 3
From
Date
The attached patch implements proper locking in ALSA lseek methods. 
Note ALSA has 3 lseek implementations, but only:

sound/core/info.c :: snd_info_entry_llseek()

requires locking. I wrapped the function in the BKL. According to
Jaroslav Kysela the gus_mem_proc method is only called from above. The
third lseek, in hwdep.c, clearly doesn't need locking. Without this
patch, the above lseek is not safe.

Patch is against 2.5.5, please apply.
